I think that is an excellent assumption to make. Santana was also working with Mclaughlin during that time on Love Devotion Surrender which also helped fuel Carlos' change of direction musically. I really don't think too many people had heard an electric guitar played like that before.... To say John Mclaughlin was an influence to many is an understatement. I can easily see Jerry being very interested in his style.

Excellent post.
